Newsletter - January 2012
on Friday, 17/02/2012 — Ricardo Vidal

Dear PAPS Newsletter subscriber,

It has been a very busy start to the new year. The PAPS Executive Committee is actively working in preparation for the upcoming XIII PAPS Forum, which will be taking place at the University of Toronto, in Toronto, Canada on the 14th and 15th of April.

While we finish up work closing the program, preparing the website and the other multitude of tasks related to the Forum, we fell a bit behind track with the newsletter schedule. However, here is our January 2012 edition and it's packed with great stories.

We have a great "Who is PAPS?" entry with João Barata's career path explained, a look into Bernardo Nascimento's award winning filmmaking career path, and toward the end of the newsletter, a brief overview of Francisco Feijó Delgado's recently published research.
We've also filled you in on some information regarding the Forum, the new PAPS Ignite Sessions and the second instalment of the PAPS-LBC award.

On a side note: we have a special newsletter edition planned soon which we think you will all enjoy. We don't want to disclose much yet but it's going to put things into perspective! Stay tuned...

Once again, if you would like to participate in the newsletter with a story, news, jobs for the job board or anything else, please feel free to get in touch by email at newsletter@papsonline.org

With our kindest regards,
2011-2012 PAPS Executive Committee

on Friday, 13/01/2012 — Ricardo Vidal

Dear PAPS Newsletter subscriber,

The last newsletter of 2011 is finally ready. The holiday travels and goodies made things fall a bit off track but it's here.

In this December 2011 edition, we learn about Carla Guimarães' impressive career path, look into Filipe Ribeiro's interesting projects and keep up with the environmentally related research that João Canning Clode has recently published. Along with the usual short news and events section and jobs board, we bring you some preliminary information about the upcoming XIII PAPS Forum that will be taking place in Toronto, Canada on April 14 and 15th. Save the dates!

We hope you enjoy this edition and feel free to get in touch with your ideas, suggestions, feedback and anything else you may want to contribute with.

We wish you a great start to 2012 and much success!

Best regards,
